While Biden and his clueless administration keep trying – with obscene and futile degrees of stupidity and soupiness – to bring the terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime to discuss their nuclear rearmament; a very small Sunni Arab country – the United Arab Emirates – is flexing her political and economic muscle and self-confidence vis a vis their arch enemy, the Shia Ayatollahs regime.
Abu Dhabi is literally leading Donald J Trump’s unbelievable Abraham Accords achievement to bring others in by showing resolve and courage while facing an implacable and very dangerous terrorist regime.
On December 3rd, 2021, the United Arab Emirates and France signed a $19bn arms deal that will see the Gulf state acquire 80 Rafale fighter jets – among the best in the world – and 12 military helicopters.
This is the largest-ever overseas sale of Rafale jets which was sealed on that Friday as French President Emmanuel Macron began a two-day trip to the Gulf, during which he also visited Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
With the Saudis, Macron is trying to help save Lebanon from Iran’s proxies, Hezbollah, which has turned a once-thriving democracy into a dysfunctional political and economic state subservient to Iran. Both France and Saudi want all militias in Lebanon to disarm and only the Lebanese army to remain.
Macron’s visit comes at a time when Gulf Arab states have voiced uncertainty and apprehension regarding Biden and the United States’ focus on the region, even as they seek more weapons from their key security ally.
In fact, Iran vehemently objected to this deal, accusing France of increasing tensions in the area.
On top of this, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett received an invitation from the crown prince of Abu Dhabi to visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Bennett recently met with UAE Ambassador Mohamed Al Khaja and Bahraini Ambassador Khaled Al Jalahma. Al Khaja extended an invitation to Bennett “from His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in the UAE, for an official visit to the UAE.”
Both countries continue taking steps towards peace and strengthening their relations “for the sake of our people and future generations.
In September 2020, the UAE and Israel signed a US-sponsored deal to normalize their relations. Since then, the two countries have signed dozens of bilateral agreements in various fields, including investment, banking services, and tourism. Three other Arab states – Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan – joined the UAE in the controversial move that came to be known as the Abraham Accords.
On July 14, 2021, the UAE opened its embassy in Israel. Several companies in Israel and the United Arab Emirates have signed deals together in recent weeks, bolstering optimism about the corporate benefits stemming from last year’s normalization of relations between the Jewish state and the Gulf monarchy.
Government-to-government deals and the emergence of private sector collaboration have assuaged previous concerns that the so-called Abraham Accords, which Israel signed with the UAE and Bahrain in September last year, were slow to generate tangible economic activity.
In November, Jordan, Israel, and the UAE agreed to build renewable electricity and water desalination plants, seeking to boost energy and water security across the Jordan River. The plan includes solar plants generating 600 megawatts in Jordan for export to Israel, with Israel building water desalination plants to export 200m cubic meters of water to Jordan.
“This [project] is the latest milestone made possible by expanding peace in the region.” The signing, witnessed by US special presidential envoy for climate John Kerry – who was 100% certain, such an event would NOT occur before a Palestinian State was created – marks a significant development in Israeli-Jordanian relations, which had failed to develop beyond a cold peace since the late 1990s.
State-led transactions were also clinched at the Dubai Air Show in November. Israel Aerospace Industries signed a deal with Dubai’s Emirates to convert four passenger airliners into freighters to service the booming cargo sector. The Israeli government-owned company also agreed to develop unmanned surface vehicles, or drone ships, with UAE state-controlled defense group Edge. The chief executive said, “We are planning for the coming decades, not days and weeks ahead.”
Sheikh Tahnoon, a brother of the country’s de facto ruler and Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed, discussed improving bilateral ties and developments in regional affairs in Tehran’s capital. He is on a visit to Iran for high-level talks that are seen as a possible sign of thawing relations between the two countries.
He first met his counterpart Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), before meeting Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi.
According to an Iranian readout of the meeting, Shamkhani said developing “warm and friendly” ties with neighbors is Iran’s top priority in foreign policy.
Sheikh Khalifa said in a tweet that the visit of Sheikh Tahnoun to Tehran comes “as a continuation of Emirati efforts to strengthen ties and co-operation in the region and in line with what serves national interests.”
He added that “the UAE seeks to solidify regional stability and prosperity through developing positive ties by dialogue.”
With business ties to Iran stretching back more than a century, the emirate of Dubai, 150 kilometers across the Gulf, has long been one of Iran’s main links to the outside world.
However, political differences remain, particularly in relation to regional developments. In Yemen, the UAE is a key member of the Saudi-led coalition that backs the internationally recognized government against Iran-allied Houthi fighters.
Yet, despite all of the above, the question that should be asked by so-called American’ political experts’: WHY has Iran agreed to meet with the UAE’s top national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan?
The reason should be really very simple: The ECONOMY STUPID! Most people do not realize that the Soviet Union collapsed, NOT by war but because of catastrophic economic failures due to insane mismanagement and with no incentives given to their people to excel.
The terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime has been and continues to be squandering hundreds of billions of dollars on terrorizing and destabilizing their neighbors so as to rule over them. This despicable theocratic regime wants to be the hegemon of the Middle East and beyond through terror. Billions that should have been spent on their infrastructure and their own citizens.
They have had a devastating drought that has decimated their farms, animals, and farmers for lack of water. On top of all these, they have ignored treating their COVID-19 pandemic correctly or even timely.
Their different national groups – not Persians – are chafing to overthrow them.
They are watching the Gulf states make peace with Israel and hence gaining technology, expertise, and finance in irrigation, agriculture, medicines, science, and technology. As much as they hate Israel and the West, reality may, at last, be setting in.
They need financial help. The only ones who can and may help them are the wealthy neighboring Arab states ONLY if Iranians mend their way and behave as good neighbors. Whether the regime leaders will actually do so remains to be seen.
